  1. 22 hours to go for the kickstarter: http://kck.st/2L5v2E3
  2. Wayne has posted an update to the Kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/britishfinescale/n-gauge-code-40-flat-bottom-rail-concrete-sleeper-turnouts/posts/2615616 - backers can choose between AV7, CV10, EV15 and left- right hand. combinations are possible - AV8 is dropped, that is replaced with AV7 - pictures of the milled turnout bases are also shown, for all three options with a class 37 for comparison And a quick look at how the Kickstarter progresses It's leveling out currently, and there is still time to put your pledges
  3. 21 people have supported this project so far. I hope it makes it through. There is still time to pledge here http://kck.st/2L5v2E3
  4. @MGR Hooper! Is tapping or clicking anywhere in the big embedded thingy not working for you? It does for me. The forum software created this block automatically when I posted the link. And yes, on britishfinescale.com concrete sleeper track is available as kit. This will build into flexi track
  5. There appear to be two threads. Found the other one first and don't know which one people follow, so I put the heads-up here as well. British Finescale has a Kickstarter running to raise funds for flat bottom rail turnouts with concrete sleepers. Rewards are 1 to 3 turnouts of type AV8.

  7. NMRA RP-20.1 http://www.nmra.org/sites/default/files/standards/sandrp/pdf/rp-20.1.pdf specifies 1 ounce (28.3 g) initial weight + 1/2 ounce (14 g) per inch of wagon body length for H0 scale. So with approximately 250 mm length for the TEA the weight would be about 168 g (28 g + (10 * 14 g), give or take.
  8. Mermaid update on the DJM website http://djmodels.co.uk/?p=501
  9. My emphasis. My observation is that with the current GBP to EUR exchange rate of 1.38 to 1.43 the N-gauge TEA has drawn level if not overtaken, depending on which day you check with prices between 35 to 39 EUR for a single wagon. From my perspective there is no more heading to the mythical European price, British rolling stock prices are going to find it's own limit.
  10. The only 3D thing you can do is setting the track to a specific hight, as far as I'm aware. Last time I checked the 3D view, the elevation of the landscape was generated automatically with awkward results if track in different heights crossed each other, there was not a single other 3D item, no bridges, no tunnels, no trees, no houses. I haven't looked at the 3D view for a long time, as it was far from impressive, in my very personal view. I'd probably use a fully featured 3D-Tool if I wanted to sketch things in 3D.
  11. Railmodeller is quite good, though, in my opinion it has a few minor niggles one can easily work around. It comes with a Railset Editor that allows you to draw your own track and accessories library. I use Railmodeller to quickly sketch plans to get a feel for dimensions for an idea and refine this into something presentable with saving versions in different stages. One of the niggles is that Railmodeller has no concept for a history of actions. You can undo the "last" action only.
  12. For our module meetings we usually have a closing date for module applications about 3 or 2 months before the meeting. The meeting is advertised about 12 to 6 month in advance. This allows for planing the layout and the timetable and to discuss this with folks. And, this allows participants to plan their travel and other activities too.
  13. Hight differences can be solved in two ways, either lower the higher or get the smaller higher. Wheelchairs could be an issue, not only because of the hight but more for getting around, though I'm optimistic there are ways to involve wheelchair users.
  14. You're right, Paul, with thinking about different train services and planing routes, however, I think this is the second step already. The number of trains concurrently on the layout is generally limited by the actual track layout of the stations that people build and bring to the meeting. All trains, whether they are running, stabled, shunting, overtaking, crossing or reversing, block a section of track or siding, that cannot be used by another train. And people keep building what they want, not what the layout planer wants, and this would be more smaller stations than stations worth ser
